Careful ongoing analysis of our admissions statistics shows that, for equally well-qualified applicants, making an open application or applying directly to a College does not affect your chance of being made an offer of a place.
This is because we have rigorous procedures in place to compare all applicants for each subject before selection decisions are finalised. Colleges would rather admit a strong applicant from the pool than a weaker applicant who applied directly to them. See further information regarding how to choose a College. This is one of the most frequently asked questions about applying to Cambridge. On average across all subjects, we typically receive five applications per place, but naturally there is some variation between courses.
The University and Colleges are committed to offering admission to students of the highest academic ability and potential.The app may include account creation, location detection, user generated content, advertisements, explicit references to or images of drugs, alcohol, tobacco, graphic violence, profanity, or crude humor, mild sexual and suggestive themes, nudity within medical, informational, or artistic contexts, simulated gambling, or other content only suitable for mature audiences.

GET STARTED SEE HOW IT WORKSData Driven BettingMost tipping services are based on anecdotal evidence and have a lack of reliable results to show for it.You predict an outcome, specify the desired stake and place the bet.
If your prediction appears to be correct, you win the bet. The winnings are calculated by multiplying the odds by the stake. Please note that parlay bet is considered won if all your predictions turn out to be correct. The vast majority of the offered bets may be combined freely in a parlay. There are a few exceptions, however, such as certain Formula - 1 bets that can only be placed as single bets. It is the bookmakers who decide which bets can be combined and their decision is based on various factors, such as the respective game or the event.
You will be informed of their decision by the time the bets are placed. The client is given a chance to determine independently the order of the bets included in the chain and stake only on the first event of the chain.
Thus, the concept of "account of the chain" is imported. After the tournament of each single bet included in the chain the sum of that account is calculated. Initially it is equal to the sum of the first bet. If the sum on the chain account is less than its initial sum, the account balance calculates single bet of the next event in the chain. The sum that remains on the account after calculation of all bets in the chain is a subject to payment.
If the sum on the account reaches zero - the chain breaks and is considered as lost. The number of possible system bets depends on the number of predicted outcomes. The possible variants of the system bet with your predictions will be displayed automatically. The main difference between system bets and parlay bets is that you can win a system bet even if not all of your predictions are correct.
Please note that the amount of possible winnings displayed when you place your bet corresponds to the maximum winnings. In a system bet, combinations of predictions are formed automatically.The service all throughout Iceland was great and we felt well looked after by Nordic Visitor staff as well as tour guides by the companies chosen for each of the add-on experiences.
It was the vacation of a lifetime and truly made our honeymoon an amazing trip to remember. Kolbrun did an excellent job for us and did everything possible to ensure that we had a great time. Nothing seemed to be too much of a bother to her and she answered all of our many questions beforehand quickly and with very good advice. At the end of our stay when we had some problem with our flights, she sorted this out quickly and efficiently.
I hope that you are paying her enough. David and Derek Iceland Winter World, March 2016 I loved how we used a different day tour agent for each of our planned trips, as it made it varied and we could compare how big the groups were.
Abby and Alice, United Kingdom Iceland Winter World, February 2016 This was an exceptional trip of a lifetime. We had an incredible experience in Iceland and would love to visit again during the warmer months just to see the stark differences between summer and winter. Eva, United States South Iceland at Leisure - Winter, February 2016 We couldn't have been happier with everything provided by Nordic Visitor - from our accomodations, the rental car and the guidance provided.
Also, Solveig was exceptional - she always answered all of my questions immediately and was extremely knowledgeable and friendly in her responses. Rhonda, United States Scenic Fjords of Norway, January 2016 Kolbrun and Nordic Visitor are super efficient and effective. So easy to get around with Kolbrun's tips, advice, and maps. Buy the Oslo pass!!!. She picked hotels that included breakfast with stay- free wifi, and free computer use (several with printers) wow, wow, wow!!!!.
Included dinner in Flam was unbelievable- fresh and delicious. Norway in A Nutshell - gave us a fantastic scenic overview - stay over in Flam - super quaint town Everything was exact as described and listed. The greatest gift that she had set up for us is the porter service for our excess luggage from Bergen to Oslo. Flam Railway advice from Kolbrun and NSB to stop before the Myrdal station (Vatnahalsen Hotel) for lunch,some coffee and conversation with the wonderful hotel staff instead of sitting in the train depot at Myrdal for over 2 hours really saved the day.
Contacted Lisa Marie from Nordic Visitor customer chat, she sent info to Kolbrun, Kolbrun contacted me with an answer first thing in the morning - thrilled that Norway in a Nutshell voucher was so easy to redeem at NSB for travel tickets.
We could not believe how seamless it would be, absolutely thrilled. Eryn, Canada South Iceland at Leisure - Winter, January 2016 Everything about this tour was great. Everything was well planned out and stress free for us throughout the week. Cannot wait to come back. Maryanne, United Kingdom Northern Lights City Break, January 2016 Excellent service, really nice people to deal with.
I telephoned from England to clear up some points, and they were so friendly and helpful, with excellent English. Very good transfers to and from airport. Eugenia, United States New Year's Celebrations, December 2015 The whole experience was great.
I am very pleased with my trip and how everything was arranged. Gilberto and Patricia, Iceland Iceland Full Circle - Winter, December 2015 We love all the support material, maps, guides, etc, the best that we ever saw. We would like to say thank you very much for all in Nordic Visitor. Iceland and his people are incredible. Steven, United States Winter Romance, November 2015 The little hand written notes regarding fun points of interest (good ice cream, hidden waterfalls, etc) was a perfect touch that gave us insight of where to go and truly realize how great a place Iceland was.
Christopher and Sonya, United States Northern Lights City Break, November 2015 Everything was fine. Kong, Singapore Northern Lights Circle Tour, October 2015 Overall, I really have a great experience for this tour. The tour guide, Trausti (hope never spell wrongly) is a great guide and very knowledgeable. He also show his professionalism when chasing the Northern Lights till the last night of the tour (Last night of the tour he still bring us to see Northern Lights) This is a fantastic and great tour.

Successful and pleasurable bottoming takes time and practice through dilation exercises, training of your self-awareness, and control of the pelvic floor. Of course, it may be uncomfortable at first and you might initially question how there could ever be pleasure in it something that happens with vaginal sex the first time as well but like anything it takes practice, patience, and following a few simple guidelines to enhance this sexual practice.
I often tell patients that great bottoms have been doing it for quite some time, with many first experiencing it in their youth.
Unfortunately, no one showed us the right way to bottom in our high school sexual education class. Use a water-based lubricant and start with the smallest plug. Insert just to the point of pressure. Hold it there for a few seconds, then try to engage the muscles. Allow yourself to relax before removing the plug, then re-lubricate and re-insert to the point of pressure.
Repeat the process three to five times. The key is to remember there are three sets of muscles that need to relax for a successful entry. Think of it as a tunnel, and the entire tunnel needs to be a well-lubed cylinder. If you become stimulated during the process, go for it. Not only is it a pleasurable side effect to your dilation training, but you can start to channel your orgasm anally and begin to gain control over time.
Once the engines have been started, the bottom needs to sit on the tip of the penis, allowing control of entry. Use plenty of lubricant and remember the different sets of muscles that need to be released to allow access. Start off using the same technique of inserting until you feel pressure, hold it there, pull out, re-lubricate and repeat. The three-to-five-time rule applies here as well.
Being on top of the penis really allows for you to determine your level of comfort. If pain occurs, you can stop, call it a day, and try again another time.
Graduating to new positions: Once you have fully received the penis, the last hurdle is to add new positions into the mix, like doggy-style. Make sure you have mastered receiving to minimize any injury and maximize pleasure. Start with you receiving on top and gaining control of your muscles before moving around to new positons.
Injury happens to the best of us: Proper techniques are obviously a must, but even brand-new cars can break down. The most common issues related to anal sex trauma are tears, also known as anal fissures. Most anal fissures will heal themselves with proper care, but fissures that become chronic will require surgical intervention.It made it more of an adventure to self drive, go our own pace, choose our own sights, but all the while with the security of excellent support materials provided by Nordic Visitor.
Some sites near Reykjavik were crowded with tour buses but around the rest of the tour, we could still be much less crowded and enjoyable, and even alone at many places. I would like also to mention that Kristin put this whole trip together for us with only 5 weeks notice, well done. We were very impressed with how smoothly everything went. Nordic Visitor did an excellent job of organising our trip.
We just gave them our dates of arrival and departure and everything else was handled for us.
This allowed us to focus on sight-seeing rather than worrying about routes or accommodations. You can only see so much in a week though, so I guess we'll have to come back to this amazing destination.
Although we have travelled a fair bit in various parts of the world, never have we had a vacation where, each night we sat down and listed off all of the things we'd never seen before-glaciers, geysers, volcanoes-hot springs- each day was filled with marvellous sights.
We loved our entire package with Nordic Visitor and our tour guide was fantastic. We enjoyed the small group atmosphere very much (there were 6 of us). We saw several tour groups of many, many more and would not be interested in a larger group, so the Nordic Visitor tour suited us perfectly. The highlighted map was really useful for planning the tour, and all the small written suggestions were the little bits that made the holiday special.
Overall, the standard of service provided through Nordic Visitor was of a high standard and we as a group have no complaints or criticisms.
We found the flexibility of a self-drive tour to be just what we required and with the time we has (15 days) we were able to see most of the accessible parts of the country that we sought. Clearly, in May, there are considerable limitations on experiencing the highlands area, but we understood that well before the trip.
However, we were able to obtain some experience there on some tracks that were partly accessible (e. Kjolur) as well as going on a flight from Myvatn. Hotels were always well located (most important), clean, excellent service and most with excellent views. Sofia was always very responsive and knowledgable.
Using Nordic Visitor to arrange for hotels and transportation saved me a lot of time. And having them available in an emergency, made me feel like I had a trusted traveling companion.
I couldn't have been happier with my trip to Iceland.You have to do it ethically, so you can offer coupons, discounts, or a freebie, but you cannot make it conditional on a positive review. When you get a negative review, respond in public, solve the problem.
This shows that you are listening and engaged which will often encourage more feedback. When you get a positive review be sure to say thank you. How many emails do you send out a day.

Our most popular download - everything you need to know if you are new to e-signatures. Their price for what they offer was bar non incredible. The features that we wanted was pretty much all-inclusive. With a lot of other companies, you get an expensive product once you add all the features you want.
The strongest feature of eSignLive is the flexibility of the platform. The easy, user friendly interface is the best part. I was able to pick it up from day one with a 30-second tutorial.
It puts that same ease of the recipient when they go to sign. I know I have been sent documents that needed my signature and I went through a 30-minute process to set up my signature.
We like eSignLive because it can be white-labelled. And DocuSign had a lot of issues relative to branding. We want to give them a seamless customer experience that represents and enhances our brand.
Other e-signature providers put one signature around the document, and not separate signatures at each signature point in the document, like eSignLive does. It puts more validity on each signature. In the old world, I would initial 10 times in the document. If you put one signature around an entire document, did I really read the entire document. The other major thing I liked about eSignLive is that when I got the package back, I had all the details about the signature, all the proof for legal means.
So, if I ever wanted to move on from eSignLive, I have all the legal proof I need.
